Humor of Knowing Another Language

Here is a story that humorously illustrates the benefit of knowing another language:


Two mice sat in their hole watching Cat lurk outside.

"I know how to make Cat go away," said the first mouse.

"How?" the second mouse asked in surprise.

“Bow, wow!!!" barked the first mouse.

Peering through their hole in the wall, they saw Cat running away in fear.

"Ah, see the benefit of knowing another language!"


[Humor of knowing another language is from the web site of E. L. Easton: -- materials for learning and teaching].
